The starter will be an incredible view of the hole city and its harbour from the top of Montjuïch Hill which road used to be a formula 1 circuit during the 50´s. Then we’ll head to Joan Miro’s Foundation where a whole Universe will open in front of our eyes.
Miró will make us fly through his poetic paintings and sculptures with plenty of humour too!! Both kids and adults will experience that imagination has no limit!
After we will follow some of the most famous athlete’s footsteps which will lead us to the Olimpic Stadium where the 1992 Olimpic Opening Ceremony took place.
We will then drive to the 1929 Worl Fair area and enter the Spanish Pavillion called Spanish Village. This place has workshops of different artists such as a glass blowing oven or Spanish guiter makers.
And what’s best: all of Spain is represented inside with different buidings from different regions. One of these artisans sells chocolate of all kinds so…YES! a must stop for churros dipped in hot or cold chocolate!
Once we leave Pueblo Español we will drive downhill towards Plaça de España with its huge bullring converted into…a shopping mall! and the National Art Museum of Catalunya and its fountains will give us a warm “hasta la vista”!

My family and I didn´t expect the fun we end up having with Eva discovering Miro´s works. He was such a great artist and my three daughters experienced the art rather than just listening to boring stories about centuries and dates which just drops their attenttion instantly. We just hit it with this tour so I highly recommend it to everyone.
